Look for the Good Project all about gratitude

People deal with pain in many different ways.

Anne Kubitsky of Killingworth turned to gratitude to help her heal from a tragedy in her life: a sexual assault.

She has started something, a movement called The Look for the Good Project, and is asking you to send her postcards about things for which you are grateful.

This is exploding into books and installations of gratitude and so much more.

“The Look for the Good Project was my way of saying, no, there’s more to me and there’s a deeper essence that’s pure, that can never be hurt or harmed, that can never be broken and I think my mother installed that sense of spirituality in me,” Kubitsky said.

The message is resonating. People are sending postcards and bottles and sandals and coconuts and glass and magnets – all kinds of things with messages of healing. Kubitsky has collected more than 6,000 items from all over the world – it’s enough for a museum.

“I think I’m being led for sure,” she said. “I didn’t know why I was doing this, it just keeps opening up.

“There is an essence of letting something unfold that’s kind of like a rose where if you’re a gardener and you really want this rose to bloom, you can’t pry it open, you have to wait, and you have to celebrate every little moment when it gets a little bigger and I’m celebrating every little moment.”
